die in afghanistan. kill would by insurgent that is seeing growing violence. this as the defense secretary called the president of afghanistan for not being grateful or thankful for the soldier's sacrifice. oliver north is down on the ground in kabul. election a mont to go. what can governor romney do to maintain momentum. they weigh in on the race for the white house. terrifying moments as a charter bus carrying 50 people overturn crashes on a busy highway. hello, everybody. i am uma live in washington with the latest on that and top stories making news in america's news headquarters . a referundum on the president. choice between two different paths for america. whatever you call it. one month for today voters will head to the polls today. governor mitt romney is in florida setting the record straight about his economic plan. john roberts is live. romney is seizing on the momentum. how are the voters responding out there? >> the voters are responding to the governor. this event will be tonight. the entertainment is just warming up six hours before the actual appearance. the gov
. thirdly, this ongoing issue of how to deal with the impending defense cuts brought about through sequestration are a critically important issue for our nation. $1 trillion in defense cuts over the next two years is simply not acceptable to be able to defend our country and provide you, the men and women who will be in the military, with the support and equipment and material that you need to defend our nation's interests. while president obama has been largely a bystander and not forceful in preventing defense cuts, governor romney has been unequivocal that this policy must be reversed and more resources need to be applied to defense. i am delighted that governor romney has chosen at virginia military institute today to be able to deliver remarks on america's leadership role in the world and on foreign policy. he is a man of immense principle, immensely successful as a leader in the public and private sector. he was commander of the massachusetts national guard, and understands very well what the men and women in the national guard do to support the cause of freedom. please join
and control over strategically important technology. speaking in brussels, the german defense minister refused to accept any blame for the failure of the merger. >> this was a commercial decision made after many discussions. we have stated our opinion, and i have no further comments to make on that. >> from a business point of view, the deal made sense. the merger would have created the biggest company in the defense industry. combined, the firms would have employed more than 200,000 people and generated revenue of 38.5 billion euros, and it would have overtaken their american competitors -- lockheed martin and boeing. bae systems has a strong presence in the american market, whereas eads has never been as successful. for that reason, this could have been a missed opporunity. >> i would like to draw in our political correspondent. simon, there was suggestion the deal collapsed because of german objections. what was it the germans were not happy about? >> it seems that germany, like france, was unwilling to give up state influence over this important defense company, which is what bae systems w
to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some noticed about policy differences with the president but one place where he'll show a difference is on syria. more activist public position and suggesting that the rebels in that country's civil war to be armed and attack the president effectively prosecuting the terrorist attack as he'll describe it that led the death of four americans at the consulate there and libya and say among other things the attack on the consulate in benghazi was likely the work of the same forces that attacked our homeland on september 11th, one. he'll draw that link between that attack and al qaeda. thomas? >> nbc's peter alexander traveling with the romney campaign there in virginia, thank you so much. >> joining me today, a super sized edition.
, defense ening. here's a little of what you're so upset about. mitt romney said it today. >> in a place like syria for instance, we should through our partners in the region, work to identify dissidents within syria that are responsible people, try to bring them together, provide weaponing and funding and they can promote their agenda. >> provide funding and weapons for them so they can defend their agenda. >> i have two questions. number one, when we get involved with war or providing weapons, it needs to go before congress. the constitution says that is the prerogative of the legislatures. it's difficult to know who friend and foe are. over a decade now in afghanistan. we have trouble telling friend from foe. the people we're training, the afgh afghan soldiers, are turning their weapons on us. so, how are we supposed to know, who is our friend and foe? there's a significant christian population in syria. they fled from iraq after the war began. they felt it was safer to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to
we do that. i oppose duplicative programs in defense costing the government $3 billion. i've opposed subsidies for agribusiness in the midwest that cost -- a cost this government over $8 billion a year that we don't need. i oppose giving away tax breaks to the oil industry and gas industry to outsource. i have been able to stand up and oppose things we don't need the we need a combination of both additional revenue from those who have done very well by this economy and them some serious -- that is some serious spending cuts. the senator we're seeking to replace, we should elect someone in the senate is going to be willing to compromise. i am. linda mcmahon is not. she is one of these candidates who signed this pledge to grover norquist and a lobbying group in washington. in her debates, she said she agreed with mayor romney that if given a chance to cut spending by $10 and increase revenue by $1 that she would not take it. we don't need to send someone to washington who is going to feed this obstructionism and draw these ridiculously hard lines and the stand -- hard line in the sand.
defense cuts that are coming up this january. these are things he has mentioned before, so this speech seemed to be an opportunity to make that argument a little more forcefully and and a place like virginia where it is a major battleground this year. the obama campaign is responding with a tv ad of their own in virginia, focusing on governor romney's foreign trip abroad, saying this was a reckless tripped and using a lot of footage from that. less than a month away from election day, we have a turn back toward foreign policy. it is the mirror image of what happened in 2008 when foreign policy had the election but once the financial collapse happened, suddenly everything turned to the economic issues and now you're seeing the other way around. host: thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> this is where mr. romney will give his speech this morning. this is the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. you are looking at the hall of valor. now romney is set to give his foreign policy speech at of the debate on foreign policy october 26 in florida. we will have live coverage
are the events and they would have all failed all other things almost defenseless. you almost can't defense yourself at all and those things are true. all the banks would have failed. some of these banks -- jpmorgan is important but so is wells fargo. they did not need t.a.r.p. to succeed her they would make loans and do it they had to do in times of need for america and so it's hard to make the case. i don't know how to do it but i'm not going to give up. i love this country too much. i am not giving up. that is why i did some things like this. my chairman's letter, which i get help from the lady sitting right behind you in fact and my wife, but i describe capital markets. what is market-making? is market-making in lumber, aluminum, brass -- not grass, grass grass. [laughter] marketing is making everything. there was market-making in communist china and the soviet union. the markets in cuba. i don't know if people think. you can sell your goods for a better price over here, go over here. that is what people do. that is what each and every one of you would do. it's not like there is a moral

hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to the military triggering significant defense job losses. now, there is a battle brewing over layoff notices that could go out right before the election. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel. >> the law says mass layoffs are coming, notices should go out 60 days ahead. obama administration that isn't necessary since many are hoping a deal will be struck to avoid the cuts. even so, a ceo i talked to he will be up front with his employees. >> it makes it challenging. people come to work. we've got some of the best people in the country working for us. they come every day, they want to design the best systems that our fighters need, but it's challenging. when they sit around kitchen table at night. honey, what is going to happen? it's tough because they don't know. >> reporter: obama administration is telling contractors if they get sued for not sending out layoff notices the government will pick up the tack. lockheed martin will hold off telling workers, but two kron man sent a letter saying quote, should you rely on that guidance and fa
. and also tonight defense secretary leon paneta weighing in on the deadly attacks saying that the u.s. is investigating a new lead in the case. the focus two men from tunisia with fake passports and held up and they have a connection to the attack, all of this as obama administration is facing new questions from law makers and could have done more about the safety of the four americans killed in libya. among the dead u.s. ambassador chris stevens. >> harris, it has been 25 days since four americans were murdered in libya the latest word from leon paneta, the hunt is on for the people responsible . he said it is too early to tell if the two men arrested were al-qaida affiliated . >> we are doing everything possible to go after those involved in the attack in libya . >> five days after the deadly raid on the embassy in benghazi ambassador susan rice said the attack spontanous and not necessarily terrorism. but she relied on the information that the intelligence community provided to her. information that she said represented the best current ark sessment as of the date of the her tele
defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. the greater tragedy of it all is that we're missing an historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east. >> rose: he also argued syrian rebels should be armed and addressed relations with israel. >> for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions not just words that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. i'll reaffirm our historic ties to israel and our abiding commitment to its security. the world must never see any daylight between our two nations. >> rose: the governor sought to capitalize on his debate performance. the next two debates will address global affairs. new polls show governor romney and president obama neck in neck in the race for president. joining me now from washington, tom friedman of the "new york times." >> great to be with you, charlie. thank you. >> rose: so tell me what you thought of the governor's speech today and did you le
the administration over what he said was a lack of embassy security. >> imposing these devastating defense cuts for it what that does when we equivocate we sho'e cutting our own defense, it makes us more weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us, more brazen in their attacks and allies are less -- >> with all due respect, that is a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? what's not a single thing is correct. be specific. security in his budget by $300@ million below what we asked for, number one. so much for that. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he even knew our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. >> we will have more on the debate later in this show, and expanded by including some third party vice-presidential candidates. the 2012 nobel peace prize has been awarded to the european union at a time when 27-nation body is embroiled in a debt crisis that has sparked mass protests in spain and greece. the nobel committee cited the etan's historical leadership, inclu
. but they said the drone got so far into israel shows quote, the weakness of israel's air defense systems. israelis have not been saying much but doing a lot. we have the patriot missile battery deployed up near haifa. we heard reports from lebanon that israeli fighter jets buzzed strongholds in southern lebanon. so far no retaliatory strikes, meaning no bombing runs or strafing runs by the israeli fighter jets but clearly a show of force by the israelis, jon. jon: drones come in all sizes. any indication how big this thing was? >> the only thing we heard it was a significant military-like dronl. one of the problems you saw the video. hard to see a her tech tiff how big it is. when the missile hit it blew the drone up. the israeli military spent a long time collecting parts from the desert from the drone blown up in midair. it has them back in a lab putting them together. the israeli military is not excited at least right now to let the press see what they have on this drone. >> i'm sure that is the case. leland vittert reporting live from jerusalem. thank you. jenna: a shocking announcem
the modernization of our forces with these disproportionate cuts that are coming to our national defense. tim and his allies up in washington are saying we do not want these cuts from defense as the house did or did something similar to that. what they want to do is raise taxes. it will not create any jobs. we in virginia have over 200,000 defense and technology jobs. rather than cutting back, we need to make sure we have a strong economy, a strong military. as far as our spending, i disagree with the president giving money -- if they cannot protect our embassies, they should not be getting our money. do not buy a friends. >> isn't there is 60-second rebuttal? >> no, there is not. >> island that on the first one. >> i thought i did, too. >> if we were both under the impression. >> virginia seniors who rely on social security benefits are in for a lifetime of work. almost 1 million virginians receiving social security check every month. they are very polite, receiving on average about 77% of their total monthly income from this alone. an aging society will put strain on the program into the fu
russian-made defense equipment. russia and syria denied there was any illegal cargo on board. in southern turkey, we get the latest. >> turkey allowed the jets to take off in the middle of the night and finished the journey. we had to wait all day to figure out just what it had discovered and confiscated on that plane. the prime minister says that they found in equipment and munitions made in russia and destined for damascus and syria's defense ministry. earlier in the day, they said that was not the case. the equipment on board was legal civilian communications equipment and should be returned immediately. what happened really proves one important point. turkey is now heavily involved in the conflict with syria. at home this country houses syrian refugees, rebels, and has intercepted a syrian jet and divide its own artillery across the border in this area. it has also got a diplomatic and political fight with russia. for the last year, they have been on opposite sides of the syrian conflict and they found that way of working to gather. -- together. >> the latest from southern turkey, a l
for financial assistance. >>> the planned measure between the europe's major aerospace and defense companies has collapsed in political deadlock. officials of franco german airbus owner eads and british based -- say in a statement the deal is canceled. they say the firms decided it was in their best interests to terminate the discussions and focus on their respective strategies. the statement came on wednesday after days of negotiations involving the british, french and german governments. >>> u.s. central bank says the economy in the u.s. is still growing but at a modest pace. the federal reserve's latest report on economic conditions across the country shows some improvements in consumer spending and the housing market. the feds report is based on surveys conducted by its 12 district banks. it says consumer spending in the last six weeks was generally flat to up slightly with rising gasoline prices weighing on sentiment. the report states housing starts and home prices are on the rise in many regions. but the fed remains cautious about employment conditions. it says the report that employment
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
. >> rick: major defense budget cuts are set to automatically kick in at the end of the year and time is running out for congress to stop it from happening and it could trigger job losses as well. why is this white house advising defense contractors to ignore a law requiring them to send layoff notices to their employees? chief congressional correspondent, mike emanuel live in washington with that. >> reporter: many involved in national security hope congress and the president will work out a deal after the election to avoid these cuts which defense secretary panetta said would be devastating but a law called the warren act, if you expect a mass layoff of employees you need to give them 60 days notice and one contractor co-says the uncertainty is rough. ? the frustration, we say what should we tell our people and it is akin to being in a car and, all of a sudden you find you are playing chicken and have your company in there and they are saying to you, if we go over the cliff we'll help you out, providing you don't tell the folks that they are in the car with us. >> reporter: the obam
, very much so. a lot more so than the president. but he these play both offense and defense. last week the president played neither. by defense he's got to be able to say "this is what we've accomplished." and point out especially in states like ohio and michigan the difference the auto industry has made student loans being -- the interest being removed. the pre-existing condition. all of those things, he's got to do it. and at the same time he's got to go on offense as far as the other side is concerned. to make -- question about mitt romney and the romney/ryan and the fractures and fissures within their own program. >> woodruff: the other thing tonight, it is 890 minutes, david, but tonight we are told the questions are going to alternate between domestic and foreign policy. how will that change what we should look for? >> well, we can all expect that joe biden will do better on the foreign policy. it's never been paul ryan's main interest and it's always been joe biden's main interest so you would think he would have natural advantage there. one quick disagreement i had with mark is
. >> reporter: defense ministers confirm there's no change to the exit strategy. they say that 75% of the population of afghanistan lives in areas where order is maintained by afghan national military and police forces. nato secretary general anders fogh rasmussen stressed the withdrawal plan is based on an objective analysis of the situation in the country. >> it's not because isaf partners rushed for the exit. it's not because of lack of cohesion within our coalition. on the contrary, we have agreed to hand over to the afghans, and as they step forwards, our troops can step backwards. >> reporter: about 100,000 troops from 50 countries including the u.s. are deployed to maintain security in afghanistan. the international forces are training afghan army and police personnel so they can fill the void after foreign troops leave the country. but trust between the two sides is being undermined by a series of recent insider attacks. international soldiers have been killed by afghan military or police personnel or people wearing afghan uniforms. anti-american sentiment has also been gr
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
to eliminate those that aren't working. i know a lot of them that aren't working. one of them is in defense spending, because i've taken on some of the defense contractors. i saved the taxpayers $6.8 billion in a deal for an air force tanker that was done in a corrupt fashion. i believe that we have to eliminate the earmarks. and sometimes those projects, not the overhead projector that senator obama asked for, but some of them that are really good projects, will have to be eliminated as well. and they'll have to undergo the same scrutiny that all projects should in competition with others. so we're going to have to tell the american people that spending is going to have to be cut in america. and i recommend a spending freeze that, except for defense, veterans affairs, and some other vital programs, we'll just have to have across-the-board freeze. and some of those programs may not grow as much as we would like for them to, but we can establish priorities with full transparency, with full knowledge of the american people, and full consultation, not done behind closed doors and shoving earma
. the defense minister said that israel takes the incident very seriously and will consider responses. of course, tensions between israel and iran are high as they continue to face off regarding iran's nuclear program. >> and then iran's response has been what? >> reporter: >> reporter: well, so far no immediate response, but they are reporting the israeli defenses, one website calls it a reference to the country's missile defense system. so so far, neither country is saying anything official, but the war of words is continuing by proxy, if you like. >> okay, thank you very much. up next, the video game world identity, and why it may come back to haunt you you. you're watching weekends with alex witt. yo, give it up, dude! up high... ok. up high... ok. high! up high!!! ok ok that's getting pretty old. don't you have any useful apps on that thing? who do you think i am, quicken loans?
